Hudson’s Huck Finn Adventure 6th birthday party
There is just SO much to love about the “Adventures of Hudson’s” party (a play on The Adventures of Huck Finn), that mama, Jenny’s Cookies planned and designed for her son’s 6th birthday. The decor is perfectly suitable for a boy that loves to spend all of his days outdoors; the “Crockett Coon Camp”, scavenger hunt hike, the naked german chocolate cake with a vintage Huckleberry Finn cake topper– she thought of it all! Let’s just dive in and talk about every detail as it appears…
Don’t you love how she displayed all the sweets, using trays, tin boxes, old drawers, worn wooden boxes, and an antique kitchen scale? Things you wouldn’t necessarily think to use, but it works so perfect with the theme!
Let it be known that Jenny and her fam live on a farm, so they’ve got tons of amazing space to work with when throwing a party. For this “Swamp Slingers” activity, they “set vintage cans and bottles out on a huge tree stump in the middle of the pond, and gave the kids a bucket of marshmallows to sling.”
Oh man, those s’mores look amazing.
She thought of everything, right? That cake is crazy beautiful, and we love how those old Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn prints she found on Etsy.
My husband blazed a fun trail for the kids before the party while I compiled a nature scavenger hunt list. I had found nets at the dollar store a few months back and had tucked them away for Hudson’s party. They were perfect for our hunt. I filled the nets with a few snacks (hikers get tired!), their scavenger hunt list, and tied them up in fabric making an old fashioned nap sack.
He’s the luckiest kid around! Happy 6th, Hudson!
